If you struggle to get around and use a car, you could get a Blue Badge.
A Blue Badge lets you park closer to your destination. It can also help you stay active and independent.
The badge is usually valid for 3 years. You will need to re-apply for a Blue Badge at the end of the 3 years. It can take up to 12 weeks to process an application. You should consider this to make sure you are not without a Blue Badge.
